Legal regulations, like RoHS, REACH, WEEE, EOLV and CPSIA restrict the use of hazardous materials for example in electronics products, toys or packaging.
RoHS restricts the use of the following six substances:
- Lead (Pb)
- Mercury (Hg)
- Cadmium (Cd)
- Hexavalent chromium (Cr6+)
- Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB)
- Polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE)
FISCHER offers proven solutions for fast RoHS screening. The samples are not destroyed and do not need to be prepared extensively. For example, the critical chemical elements Pb, Hg and Cd with detection limits of a few ppm can thus be measured in plastics.
